Friendly and fast service to deal with a grey water blockage and long term solution. Reliable and professional.
Thank you Matthew for awesome service and advice. Matt purchased and replaced new shower tapware set, install the shower rose we supplied and replaced our leaking Cistern which we had (unbeknown to me) he then conducted a CCTV inspection of our drainage system in the main bathroom advising the issues and recommendation on up keep of the maintenance of our drainage system. You were quick, very efficient and knowledgeable - and for a Saturday, it was so awesome. We now have peace of mind and I am so happy to have made contact - Thank you
I found that Zane Harris was friendly, polite and professional (and genuinely seemed to enjoy his job). He showed me images of the problem, and took the time to thoroughly discuss solutions. He did a great job and left my property neat and tidy. Alex was the second plumber who did the work. He was equally polite and hard-working.
Very impressed with Jetset plumbing. Jessie arrived on time, gave me a call before arriving to let me know how away he was. He looked at the issue and dealt with the cause of the problem rather than just the symptom. He also took the time to look at preventative maintenance of our sewage pipeline and we were able to book in resolving that very quickly. He was able to fit me in the following day with his co-worker Sean. Would definitely recommend this company to others.
Had a sewer problem day before Good Friday - were we lucky Jetset were able to come and assess the situation that day! They planned to return Easter Saturday and did so, but needed further consultation due to an unforeseen problem. So yesterday the whole team was here to dig, lay pipes etc. They lived up to their advertisement/reputation - everything done efficiently and a good tidy up afterwards. (We were able to stay in the house for that week being careful with our water usage). So feel we almost know the whole? team - Zane, Steve, Andrew, Dean, Rhys, Kye. Definitely use them again. Many thanks.
Had MAJOR sewer line work done at my house 12 months ago. Had a call from Jetset Plumbing advising I was entitled to a free camera check of the work done, to ensure all was good. Had Rhys attend who did a thorough job of checking all the sewer lines for signs of any problems. Very happy to say no issues found. Jem & team did a great job last year, been a trouble-free existence for us ever since! Rhys even offered to check our storm water pipes whilst he was there and had the gear out. :) We are very happy with all the work we have had done, both plumbing & electrical work. Happy to recommend to others!
We had Mike from Jetset Plumbing come and fix a block drain issue. He arrived early, even ringing before hand to ensure that this was OK. We have used Jetset plumbing on several occasions and what I like most is not only their promptness, friendly employees but their thoroughness. Mike explained clearly what the issue was and option for fixing it with clear costing. I highly recommend Jetset Plumbing.

Matt, Lachlan and Steve were absolutely fabulous in working to fix my drain issues and other small plumbing problems. They did high quality work and were punctual. Good communication, excellent clean up. I will use JetSet Plumbing in the future. Highly recommend them! Thank you
The guys where great at explaining everything. Job was completed without any drama. Rhys, Zane and Kye were very professional and friendly.
Last weekend our laundry flooded our house and the tiolet was full of water. My husband rang Jetet plumbing, and lovely Rylee turned up on a Sunday. I can't express the professionalism of this young man. We had tree roots in our pipes, and I can tell you I thought I was going to be sick as we had just finished a huge reno about year ago, so money was tight. But he gave us options on how to get this fixed without selling a body organ, and I felt like I could take a breath. Rylee turned up the next day at the time he said he would ( I know rare these days for a tradie to turn up and be on time) and fixed the issue with texts to me at work during the day showing me how it was going. I can't express how thankful I was when I got home, and I didn't even have to clean or put anything back, truly amazing, really. Even everything was put back in my laundry tub cupboard exactly how I would put it. (my husband thinks I have OCD). Then I get home yesterday to find a parcel at my door to find these cute little salt and pepper grinders 🥰 love them. Thank you so much Rylee you are a true asset to the company. Jeset plumbing will only ever get my business from now on when I have any plumbing issues. Keep up the great work guys you are an awesome company. 👌
Jetset Plumbing is absolutely amazing! Gem, the plumber who came to our rescue, is a true gem himself. Running our own business, we value excellent customer service, and Jetset Plumbing exceeded all my expectations. We were dealing with a stubborn blockage problem, but Gem swooped in and fixed it in no time. Not only did he solve the issue, but he also shared some valuable tips on using the right toilet paper to prevent future blockages. It's the little details like this that make all the difference! What really impressed us was Gem's patience and willingness to address all our questions and concerns. He never made us feel inadequate or silly for asking, and he went above and beyond to ensure everything was taken care of. We can't recommend Jetset Plumbing enough. If you're looking for a reliable plumbing company with top-notch customer service, look no further. If we have any other plumbing issues, we will definitely be calling them again! 🚽💧

Pipe Relining

Pipe relining (aka "pipe inversion") is an effective way to fix broken and damaged pipes - without the need for digging up your yard.

Relining drains and sewer pipes involves inserting a pipe liner into the existing drain pipe. The liner then becomes permanently fixed to the surrounding pipe, essentially replacing the pipe from within.

It's 4 times stronger than the original pipe!

Drain Cleaning

Latest drain cleaning technology

High Pressure Jetters are an extremely effective and efficient way to clear both your sewer and stormwater drains. It's great for clearing out all greasy blockages and removing any tree roots.

Jetset Plumbing's High Pressure Water Jetters can run at a pressure of 5000 psi.

High Pressure Water Jetters

High pressure water blasts out of the end of a small nozzle attached to the hose. The hose is placed into the drain and self-propels itself through the pipe blasting through any obstacles, such as tree roots, grease, moss, dirt that are in its path.

The high pressure jetters aren't just a blockage remover - they are a drain clearing and drain cleaning machine!

One advantage of the high pressure jetting machine is it can reach blockages that are further along the pipes than what a conventional electric eel drain machine or drain snake can reach. We also tend to use our high pressure jetting machines for kitchen sinks as they are always filled with grease. The machine easily cuts through the grease and fats to allow the pipe to flow freely again.

The high pressure jetting machine is very efficient for cleaning drains and sinks in commercial properties as well where thick build up can occur.

Plumber clearing a blocked drain with a high pressure water jetter

If you have a blocked stormwater drain we can save you time and money by using the high-pressure water jetting. The blocked drain clearing experts here at Jetset Plumbing find the easiest method for cleaning blocked stormwater drains and blocked sewer drains is to use the high pressure drain clearing machine.

Using highly pressurised water, at a rate of 5000 psi, it can easily cut through a heavy drain blockage that we might find, and is especially effective on those slimy, sludgy build-ups and tree root infiltrations most commonly found in some drains.

The jetter is better at drain cleaning than the older methods such as the drain snake or electric eel. The drain snake or electric eel aren't drain cleaning machines.

Blocked Drain Causes

What is causing your drain to block?

Whatever is causing your blocked drain, the experts from Jetset Plumbing will be able to have it cleared and cleaned or the section of damaged drain replaced to have your water flowing again better than ever.

Tree roots in a blocked drain

Blocked Drains from Tree Roots

Are tree roots blocking your pipes or drain?

Using CCTV Drain Cameras we will find out exactly what is causing your sewer drains to block up. Our inspections identify and locate serious drain problems like tree roots. Tree roots in your drains can cause debris to build up and crack or collapse your pipes which could end up costing you thousands of dollars in repairs in the long run.

How do tree roots block drains? When it first starts, the root is often just big enough to block toilet paper, kitchen grease and other debris. Then as more waste builds up, it eventually clogs the whole drain.

Tree roots blocking a stormwater drain

Tree Roots in Your Drains? Here's Why and What You Need to Know! video

So what if roots have damaged your pipes? There are a few potential options your plumber can talk to you about.

Your plumber can replace your clay pipes with new PVC pipes. New PVC pipes are better at stopping tree roots from penetrating them.

You may also be able to reline your existing sewer pipes in situ. This can save digging up your property and an economical alternative to replacing the pipes.

These 5 Trees WILL Destroy Your Drains! video

CCTV Drain Camera

CCTV sewer drain camera technology

Jetset Plumbing have several Closed Circuit TV drain cameras (CCTVs) which can be placed down your drain or sewer pipe to see what is causing your blocked drains.

The drain camera will clearly identify any damages that may have occurred to the pipe from the blockage and determine why the drain has blocked up. This will allow your plumber to find and identify the exact location and problem of the blockage and then decide on the most effective clearing method.

Collapsed pipes, tree roots, misaligned pipes and foreign objects in the drain are all problems we can identify when we use the CCTV camera.

In some cases, drain problems can be ongoing and require further assistance, again, this is where one of our CCTV drain cameras can help.

TOP 5 Signs of a BLOCKED DRAIN! (Professional Plumbing Tips)

"Electric eel" drain machines or "drain snakes"

Traditional electric eel drain machines or drain snakes are outdated and can pose a risk to your pipes while attempting to clear stubborn blockages. Their rough action might actually cause damage to your pipes, leading to additional problems.

That's why we only use 5,000 PSI High Pressure Water Jetters.

The REAL Reason Your Shower is Blocked... And How to Fix It!

The REAL Reason Your Shower is Blocked... And How to Fix It!

What is a blocked sewer pipe?

A blocked drain in your sewer system usually results in wastewater, sewage etc overflowing somewhere on your property. This could be from your toilet lines, your shower drains or even your kitchen drain line. When your sewer line is blocked up, it is definitely a more urgent situation than most other blocked drain situations as you usually can't continue to use any of your internal plumbing fixtures.

What are the warning signs of a blocked toilet?

A blocked toilet can either appear out of nowhere, or it can slowly build up over time giving you continuous warning signs. When you flush your toilet, if the water rises up to the top of the bowl that is a sure sign to tell you there is a blockage somewhere that is struggling to move through your drain. You may also hear gurgling noises coming from the bowl when other fixtures are being used.

What are blocked stormwater drains?

When we experience rain, our drains are designed to handle the flow of water from around your roof and also around your house. If you have ever noticed overflowing water from your gutters and downpipes, or even flooding around the outside of your home, you may have a serious blocked stormwater drain.

Blocked sinks

Whether you have a blocked kitchen sink or a blocked bathroom sink, there are multiple reasons why you are left with a pool of water in the bottom. Either there is a build up of hair and gunk, or it could be more severe such as a build up of grease and fats. You want to ensure your entire drain is free of any obstruction once the sink is flowing freely.

Blocked shower drains

Blocked shower drains may be caused by a simple hair and soap scum blockage, or it could be a more serious issue within the pipes under your bathroom floor. Whatever the cause of the issue, you need your local plumber to inspect your pipes to ensure there are no serious blockages.

FAQs: Blocked Drains

Clearing a blocked drain involves several steps to ensure thorough removal of the obstruction. Our process typically begins with an assessment of the blockage's nature and location using specialised equipment such as camera inspection to identify and address any underlying issues within the pipe. We then employ methods such as high pressure jetting to dislodge and flush away the debris. Our experienced plumbers tailor the approach based on the severity and type of blockage, ensuring a successful clearing while minimising potential damage to your plumbing system. We may also employ a technique known as pipe relining.
Outside drains can become blocked due to a variety of factors. Leaves, twigs, and debris carried by wind or rainwater can accumulate and obstruct the drainage path. Additionally, soil, mud, and silt can get washed into drains during heavy rainfall, gradually causing blockages. Roots from nearby trees and plants might infiltrate the drain pipes, leading to clogs. Poorly maintained or damaged drain covers can also allow larger items to enter and block the drain. Regular cleaning, proper landscaping, and preventive measures are recommended to minimise the risk of outside drain blockages. If you encounter persistent blockages, our experts can help identify the underlying causes and provide effective solutions.
Unclogging a toilet involves a series of steps to address various potential causes of blockage. Initially, we assess whether the blockage is localised within the toilet's trap or if it extends further down the drainpipe. We often start to dislodge minor obstructions in the toilet trap. If the clog persists, it could be indicative of a deeper issue in the drain line. In such cases, specialised tools like high pressure jetting might be used to reach and remove the obstruction. While the toilet is a common point of blockage, issues within the main drain line can also contribute to recurring clogs. Our skilled plumbers can determine the root cause and employ the appropriate methods to ensure effective unclogging and prevent future blockages.
The cost of clearing a blocked drain can vary greatly. It all depends on the nature of each job, the severity of the blockage, how complex removal is and how long the plumber will be required to stay at the job. The cheapest removal of a blockage is a basic blocked toilet as these can be removed quite quickly. However, most blockages require specialised equipment such as a CCTV drain camera or a high pressure jetter.
There are a number of things that could cause a blocked drain. It could be from a build-up of gunk to foreign things being caught in the drain. We find generally the main causes of a blocked drain are build up of grease and fats, leaves (stormwater drains) and hair.
1. The drain takes too long to drain. 2. The drain is overflowing. 3. The drain starts to smell. 4. The drain makes strange noises.
To clear a blocked drain pour some hot water down your clogged drain. It will also help to mix equal parts baking soda and vinegar with the hot water. Cover the drain with a plug and let it sit for 30 minutes. Follow it up with more hot water to flush it out. Don't use boiling hot water as too hot a water may warp your PVC pipes.
To unblock a kitchen or bathroom sink, run hot water down the drain to soften the clog. Put some washing-up liquid down the drain and then run more hot water. If this doesn't work, try using a suitable chemical drain cleaner.
